1. Better mental health support

"The lack of support for those suffering from mental illness. If you break a bone the hospital will fix it, but time and time again it has been tragically made clear the lack of support there is in the Valley for people suffering from diseases that can't be seen. It makes me sick and something has to change." - Alyssa Cassidy

2. Better toilets

"For the Clarence Valley to be a top tourist destination we should have more toilets that are cleaner and revamped." 

3. More things for our kids

"More activities in town for the youth not just sport, for example drag racing. More competition with skateboarding. Fishing comp for youths. Try to get them involved in things to try and stop the amount of suicides." - Lynne Fielden

4. No more domestic violence

"It would be nice to hear that it is extinct." - Andrew John Schaeffer

5. End to flooding

"Add another foot on the levee wall all the way to Yamba so no one gets flooded. - Lauren Young

6. Affordable accommodation

"Everyone to be able to afford accomodation, to have a home and health resources available in the Valley" - Sue Noddy

9. Nicer water

"The water we drink. It used to be the best, now it tastes crap." - Andrew Wakefield

10. Happier workers

"Most of the staff that act like they don't need the job therefore can't muster up a smile. Be grateful to have a job." - Bindi-belle Original
